Three-Seater Hybrid Car that Splits into Smaller Cars


A Hungarian company called Antro together with a group of enthusiasts created an eco-friendly concept vehicle dubbed Solo. The main thing about this three-seater car is that is can split in two separate smaller cars. In addition, you can add a second Solo vehicle and get a six-seater car called Antro Duos.

Solar panels, mounted on the roof, collect power that is then used by small electric engines (one engine installed behind each wheel) to power the vehicle. On a full charge Solo can travel up to 20 kilometers. After that it turns on the combustion engine that runs on gasoline or ethanol.

One more interesting feature is the ability to run the vehicle using pedal power (each passenger has a set of pedals linked to an electric generator).
